Linda Townsend, founder of Release Well-Being Center, Inc (Westborough, MA), called upon her extensive background in the corporate environment, as well as her wellness knowledge and experience, to create an ideal sanctuary to foster optimum well-being. After several years in journalism and marketing, Linda was recognized for her work in the Young Presidents Organization, an international organization of more than 9,000 CEOs, for outstanding work building and facilitating peer groups. Trying to balance her career while raising three young children, she became attuned to the importance of consistent self-care (you must put on your own oxygen mask first before you can help others!), which led her to become a certified yoga instructor in 2007 and then an executive and life coach. Linda has a BA in Journalism and MBA from Northeastern University, and a Graduate Certificate in Executive Coaching from William James College.
